When I decided to capture this region, my target
naturally was Vitello and Doppelmayer.
Who does not marvel at the rilles system that
surrounds the small central elevations at Vitello?
Who is not surprised to see the central pyramid-shaped
peak of Doppelmayer?
But when I looked at the photo better, I was surprised
by a small shallow crater (indicated by the arrow)
halfway between Vitello and Doppelmayer.
My curiosity was aroused and so I decided to
analyze it better in QuickMap.
Which was not my surprise to find a small old
concentric crater! Using the tool Line Tool I quickly
calculated its diameter in no more than 3.5 km.
I realized that even LROC has not yet done a
detailed mapping of this crater that I will call "Lee
X" so that I do not get a clear 3D projection Of that
formation, but even so,
I believe that the image obtained from the QuickMap
leaves no doubt to treat itself if a concentric crater
little known or even unknown.
